Summer is approaching here in Canada, and with it the promise of vacations. This year they may be “staycations”, but better than nothing. How is everyone coping with isolation and distancing? The one thing I know for sure is our experiences with online solutions have never been more important! And Moodle is proving to be a very important global solution.

While this newsletter may feel a little light on information, be assured that your committee is still working as hard as they can to drive the MUA’s initiatives forward. The pandemic is causing havoc with everyone’s schedules, but we are pushing through and prioritizing to get things done. If you ever have concerns or questions, reach out to me or any of the committee members.
